    Re: Help Identifying Mandolin

    Yup, made in Vietnam, sold on eBay by either Antoniotasai or Bruceweiart. Just the same as a recent banjo shaped object that was here.

    Re: Help Identifying Galiano Guitar

    OK, I found a listing for a Galiano distributed by B-F as having been Made in Holland but I have no idea where that "made in Holland" is coming from. Looking for the distributor in some old...

    The most important thing other than the post spacing is the orientation of the gear, worm over or worm under. They aren't interchangeable in most cases. Paul Hostetter had some all telling images on...

  7. Re: Kluson Supreme F Type Gold Mandolin tuners

    Post a picture of the tuners. To be honest, Kluson reproductions would probably be my last choice. They were a strange internal design to begin with. Are your tuners worm over or worm under?

    Why is it strange? You're replying to a post from 2014 and the person that posted it may not have even bought it. It could have changed hands a few more times. Like, I said this has happened here...

    Re: Tuners for an F-9

    Getting back to Alan's original question, if you do choose to replace them they are worm under tuners. The screw holes may not match up exactly on anything and that's not a big deal. Wavery, Rubner,...

    Re: help with tuners

    Those tuners are most likely original and before you choose to change them out you might want to look at the Late Paul Hostetter's page on tuner maintenance. It can be found here. Beyond just...

    Re: Tuners for an F-9

    Just about the only connection between Gibson Grover and regular Grover tuners is the name Grover. The buttons and screw sizes aren't even the same.

    Re: Tuners for an F-9

    They were used for well over 10 years. They could possibly still be using them, I don't know. They replaced the Schaller's spec for spec so they didn't need to retool. I don't have a whole lot of...

    Those are Gibson Grover tuners, made by Grover specifically for Gibson. I used a set for several years before swapping them out for Waverly tuners. I'm actually surprised, they seemed like really...

    There are old threads here about three piece and more Gibson backs. I'll see if I can find them.

    Just have a luthier cut a new nut. That's your best option. Hopefully someone can recommend a luthier in Chicagoland.

    Waverly. What is the problem? Stewmac will replace them if they are defective but look at the nut slots first.

    Alan, post a picture so we can ID the tuners. I'd be looking at the nut slots and tuners can be serviced.
